To post to CRUST-L, send messages to CRUST-L@VIMS. Colonies form nests (termitaria) in wood that is in or on the ground. Like the nauplius larva itself, the median eye is thought to be a primitive (defining) feature of the Crustacea; it is secondarily reduced or lost in many taxa in which the corresponding larval stage is suppressed.

Peigler's rearing and hybridization experiments on wild silkmoths are well documented in the collection. Many of the leading developmental biologists of the time were in the thick of things, each proposing his own explanation (Meckel 1811; Serres 1824; von Baer 1828; and others). Mites and ticks comprise the largest group of arach- nids. Toulmond, “Adaptations to extreme environmental hypoxia in water breathers,” in Comparative Physiology of Environmental Adaptations, P.

Basic vertebrate anatomical systems and a consideration of variations, using functional embryological and evolutionary approaches. This Montessori application was co-developed and approved by an AMI certified, Montessori teacher with over forty years experience educating children! Impact of Arenicola marina on bacteria in intertidal sediments. Recent anatomical work by Edward Ruppert and colleagues supports the idea. Elongation factor 1- alpha sequences do not support an early divergence of the Acoela.

Aplacophora as progenetic aculiferans and the coelomate origin of mollusks as the sister taxon of Sipuncula. The oldest insect fossils date back to the Devonian period, about 416 million years ago. Many, how- ever, are free-living predators, and some are scavengers. One well known relationship is that of a polynoid scale worm, Arctonoe vittata, and several species of asteroid hosts, including the Pacific leather star, Dermasterias im- bricata.

Female strepsipterans release several thousand tiny larvae that escape from their mother (and from the host’s body, in the parasitic species) to invade the soil and vegetation. The process of shed- ding the exoskeleton is called molting, and it is a phe- nomenon characteristic of arthropods and a few other invertebrates with thick cuticles (onychophorans, tardi- grades, kinorhynchs, nematodes, nematomorphans, loriciferans, and priapulans).

When an insect is visually detected, the spider sweeps the net around it. In the end bulb, surrounding the stomach and first part of the intestine, blood flows from efferent to afferent vessels through spaces composing the hemal (stomachic) plexus (Figure 21.2D,E). On the surface of the body are eight equally spaced meridional rows of comb plates. Supplemental Photo Collection: This collection of over 900 photographs depicts organisms that span the entire range of phyla covered in the textbook.

But once you study the life cycles and food chain, you’ll have a better understanding of nature’s handiworks. These rods provide “skeletal” support for the musculature of that region and may con- tribute to masticating action. Acoelomates: without a body space other than the digestive tract; mesenchyme and muscle fill region between gut and epidermis. There is no admittance to the BA and BS in Zoology degrees effective Spring 2013. Because synapomorphies are shared homologues inherited from an immediate common ancestor, all homologues may be considered synapomorphies at one (but only one) level of phyloge- netic relationship, and they therefore constitute symple- siomorphies at all lower levels.
